Dausa, or Dev Nagri as it is known locally, is a historically rich city in Rajasthan. The name Dausa or Dhausa is derived from the historical relevance of the city as it is surrounded by Mahadeva in five directions. These Mahadevas are Nilkanth, Gupteshwar, Sahajanath, Somnath, and Baijnath
Dausa was established in the early medieval period. It is situated in Dundhar and was the first capital in the history of Dhundhar. The city was majorly ruled by rulers of Chouhans and Raos Dynasties in the tenth century AD. The city prospered under two of the most prominent kings of Dausa. These were Soodh Dev (996-1006 AD) and Raja Dule Rai (1006 - 1036 AD) of the Chouhan Dynasty
Moreover, Dausa has also bestowed our nation with brave freedom fighters during the Indian Independence Movement. Late Shri Tikaram Paliwal passionately rebelled against the British government in India. He later became a popular Chief Minister of Rajasthan in 1952. Another important freedom fighter was Late Shri Ram Karan Joshi who worked tirelessly to transform Rajasthan from a princely state to a nation-state
Dausa has also made significant contributions to Indian Literature. Poet Sant Sunderdas of Dausa was a Nirguna Panthi Sant in the 17th century. He is credited with writing forty-two ‘granths’ in his lifetime including Gyan Sundaram and Sunder Vilas. Dausa is well-known for manufacturing sandstone carvings. These carvings are sold domestically and internationally in Sikandra which is 25 km away from the city.
During Basant Panchami, people of Dausa hold a ‘mela’ or fair in the name of deities like Raghunathji, Narshingji, and the Sun God. This fair helps the natives rejuvenate and goes on for three consecutive days
Dausa is home to many magnificent architectural designs and places of worship like Abhaneri, a post-Gupta and an early medieval monument. Similarly, there is Bhandarej; an 18th-century stepwell, Mehandipur Balaji Temple, Nilkanth and Panch Mahadev Temple, Shri Paplaj Mata Temple, and Shri Binouri Balaji Temple. For nature lovers, Getolav Bird Habitat is a must-visit place in the rainy season.
Dausa falls on the Delhi-Jaipur and Agra-Jaipur train routes. The name of the station is Bandikui Junction. National Highway 11 connects Dausa with Jaipur, Agra, and Delhi. It is just 55 km away from Jaipur via this highway
